Green 707 first time recorded

Green 707 time

Green 707’s record has been officially recorded by the National Electric Drag Racing Association (NEDRA)! NEDRA exists to raise awareness of electric vehicle performance and to encourage advances in the technology through competition. NEDRA organizes and sanctions safe electric vehicle drag racing events.

                Green 707 had to meet many requirements to earn a NEDRA record, including track requirements, eligibility, rules set forth by the organization, and to follow the record submission procedure. Paul Mangelsdorf, the club’s president, is excited to see if the new batteries they have ordered will yield even better results next time they hit the track. Professor Hemchandra Shertukde, the club’s faculty advisor, is proud of the club’s recent accomplishments and looks forward to seeing what new modifications can be made to improve the vehicle’s performance.
